The Taste NY Producer Showcase, originally scheduled for April 28, was rescheduled to Thursday, Sept. 22.
Organizers said the in-person portion of the event was rescheduled to allow more businesses time to prepare and register for the event.
The event on Sept. 22 will take place in the Northwest Bay Conference Center in Adirondack Hall at SUNY Adirondack, 640 Bay Road in Queensbury.
Admission is free. Booth space for producers is $25 and includes a breakfast, a networking event and two morning workshops to help producers expand their reach in the marketplace.
Registration for the showcase in September is open for both attendees and vendors.
In the meantime, two free virtual workshops were held on Thursday, April 28, to help farmers and agricultural producers in the Adirondack region and New York state grow their businesses.
Local restaurants, wholesalers, and other businesses looking to connect with local food and beverage producers will have a chance to in September to meet face-to-face at the Taste NY Producer Showcase.
This business-to-business expo event is intended to help farmers and agricultural producers in the Adirondack region and New York state grow their businesses and encourage hotels, restaurants, bars, retail locations, and institutions to purchase local products.
This showcase will be the third business-to-business food show organized by the Lake George Regional Chamber of Commerce. The Adirondack Region Food and Farms Business Expo was held at SUNY Adirondack in Dec. 2019 followed by a first-of-its- kind Virtual Taste NY Producer Showcase in Oct. 2020, which featured 60 producers in a virtual environment, a modification made in response to the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We are pleased to return to the in-person format in September with a showcase that offers 50 New York state producers an opportunity to connect with potential wholesale buyers and attendees from the Adirondack region,” said Lake George Regional Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Gina Mintzer.
